The Swedish dub and reggae king Papa Dee has just returned from Jamaica with a spanking new record that he's produced together with a bunch of legendary musicians. On Friday he will perform some soft dub and vibrant reggae tunes together with Desmond Foster at Nefertiti.
Bring a blanket a baguette and a bottle and head out to the all day picnic festival in Kålltorp. This is a laid back local festival with no attempts to be cool, funky or even exclusive …It's just a day in the sun with good music and great company. Take the tram to Torp and follow the signs to Apslätten (the Monkey plain). Playing live are, among others: Svarta Safirer, Napoleon, Silversystrar and Autisterna.
One of Oslo's finest Dj's will take over the party boat Styrbord Barbord with his new club night Reibakken on Saturday. The music will be a mix of rock and electronic disco beats. Styrbord Barbord is a perfect location for a hot summer night. The boat unfortunately doesn't leave the bridge, but simply standing on deck with a margarita in hand gives one the vague feeling of being on a glamorous boat cruise to Long Island in the twenties. Just watch out for Gatsby.
The Caribbean meets Gothenburg! Club Bacchanal is the only spot in town where you can get all of the hot rhythms of the Caribbean. Calypso, Soca, Zouk and much more. Celebrate the fantastic beginning of summer to all night rhythmic beats at the African/Caribbean restaurant Simba.
One Sunday per month Berlin comes to town through the Dj's Nibc and La fleur. They bring the newest electronic beats from the dance capital of Europe, Berlin. The Swedish duo, resident in Germany promise to turn the tables in the backyard at Magnus & Magnus with mega house, filthy beats and dirty dancing.
